nuranar: Hortense Bonaparte. La reine Hortense sous une tonnelle à Aix-les-Bains (1813) by Antoine Jean Duclaux. (Default)
I finally went through my coats/gloves/winter hats capsule a week or so ago. There were a few things that I can give away, and a few more than I may put in a "holding zone" since I'm really not using them at present but don't want to give up right away.

It was also clear I needed some more gloves. Leather gloves, for driving and for wind protection. I have plain black and suede ones that aren't that heavy, and some green ones that are great but starting to look pretty worn. I bought two pair. One black, but heavier, with rabbit fur cuffs. (I prefer longer lengths or cuffs to fill in the coat sleeve gap.) And another navy, since I have several navy coats and wear lots of navy. They arrived today and are great! Of course it will be 80 degrees tomorrow...

The other thing I ordered was a wool beret. Soft berets are the best winter hat for me, since they don't give me too much hat hair, cover my ears, and don't blow off in the wind. I have only two, one a soft pink knit, and the other a brick red knit. They're good, but slightly limiting in color scheme, and not as warm as they could be in super high winds. When I was in Nordstrom a couple weeks ago I tried a cream wool beret that fit very well. Thick and dense, but soft and a good size for my head.  I ordered it over the weekend and it should arrive next week.
